  1. So you're really telling me saying that ML is not the best line in a ML board with probably 100+ fans who think it is isn't over the top?

     

    And have your opinions,Just don't say them so bluntly and insultingly.I don't know if you realise,But becoming a moderator is a great honour,And with the job comes a new approach to things.You're supposed to show some class and restraint.I honestly do not see many other Mod's in these multi quoting discussions which are obviously angering some members.These are unwritten rules of being a moderator.I'm not telling you how do your job,But from my point of view it looks like you need to be.Follow the advice or not,I'm out.

  2. lets not make this into what it isnt. you can bring up dcu all you want....has nothing to do with anything. i wasnt talking dcuc...you are. did i say MU was better than ML? if you cant keep up......KEEP QUIET. please stick to the subject, and stop trying to use fluff to defend the fact that i made a comment that you didnt like. i dont try and hurt you guys feelings....i really dont. i speak my mind, and i dont get irate. i dont try and call names, i just point out what i feel. if you personally dont like me...tough.(ya dont know me anyway)

     

    I think he was commenting on how you always bring DCUC up,And yes,You do bring it up all the time.This being a marvel forum,you'd think you would know better.Speak your mind and share your feelings all you want,But this is what happens when you do.

    i think thats something that i can live with.

     

    Moderator? I'm sorry,I cannot understand you at all.Cause conflict on the board then.I don't care,But I would really think a person in power would have more respect for the members he is moderating.Have opinions,But have them in a civil way.Listen to me or not.What do I know? I'm just a spectator.

     

     

    how am i disrespecting anyone? all im saying is.....if you like MU, fine. and its fine if ya dont. i just cant see why ML fans cant except that theres two line without getting their underwear in a bunch? we are all still talking about marvel!

     

     

    " if you cant keep up......KEEP QUIET." "you guys just WILL NOT KEEP AN OPENED MIND"."ML was the first, trheyre not the best.(anymore)"

     

    That is not only personally disrespectful,it is also disrespectful to Marvel Legends collectors on a Marvel Legends board.You may not think it is bad,But it is.As a moderator i'd have expected you to rise above anything said before instead of diving right into it,But I guess moderator's are not everything they were anymore.

  5. more MU!

     

    Ok,You really need to shut up with this crap. We get it,You don't like Legends anymore. Either post on the Marvel Universe board or don't post at all,Cause' you're really starting to piss me and I'm sure the same applies other members .

     

    Amen, sir. I knew we could agree on something.

     

    You can find your way to the little toys on the MU board. Right now the adults are speaking.

     

    And people wonder why they, as collectors, aren't taken seriously. Maybe it has something to do with the poor attitudes and constant sniping because Person A doesn't like what Person B does. Pathetic.

     

     

     

    So instead, the big Marvel Legends announcement you've all been pining for is finally made and yet...still complaints. Shocking.

     

     

    These comments don't really do anything to stop the sniping now,Do they? Or are you just all preach and no brains?

    I also spoke with Jesse a bit about Fwoosh, and he said he appreciates all the feedback and how it helped during the Toybiz days. He also said they WERE supposed to show figs at NYCC, but they couldn\'t, hence the slip-up. I think we owe him a little more trust and respect from now on.

     

    What?!

     

    Look, I'm as excited and elated as anyone that ML is going to live on. They had my total support the entire time, and I'll be on board just the same this go around, but I'm afraid I must be the voice of negativity once again.

     

    I hope no one takes me the wrong way, and I'm not trying to be confrontational, but Jess Falcon straight out lied. Okay, so he wanted to show us some product @ NYCC. If he's such a stand up guy, why the hell wasn't he just up front about it to begin with instead of making up some BS story about forgetting which convention he was at and being confused and so on? Honestly did anyone here buy that crap? He would have garnered a whole lot more respect (from me, anyway) had he given us this story from the start.

     

    It's nice that they showed these pictures but whether these are pictures of actual prototypes or just concept art it's evident they were made using 100% used parts. Honestly, I could have done these on Photoshop a few hours before the convention opened, and I think a lot of us could have (Lady Bullsey's paint job looks totally photomapped). They got a lot of work ahead to show us they are committed to ML. Used body parts are cool, but even Mattel knows used head sculpts are unacceptable.

     

    Make no mistake, Mr. Falcon is 100% company man and figurehead for Hasbro. We don't owe him anything. He lied to us and strung us along, all the while throwing all his creative efforts behind MU. These pictures are no great feat. He's gotta earn our respect back and only time will tell if he's up to the task.

     

     

     

    Without Mr.Falcon,We wouldn't have 60% of the Marvel Legends we have today,So,Yeah,Show him some god damn respect for once and stop that stupid moaning.

     

    I'm sure he's a nice guy and I'm sure anyone who's talked with him feels a bit more of a personal connection with him, but you can rap with him, have lunch with him, take his kids to Chucky Cheese, have a spa treatment together, share an ice cream soda or whatever you want, but facts are facts and the fact is he's a bold faced liar.

     

    You're right, we probably wouldn't have 60% of ML had he not been involved, but if he had stayed on course with ML and not thrown all his efforts into trying to get us to buy into the MU concept, we'd probably have about 40% - 60% more wouldn't we?

     

    I'm sorry you "think" he deserves more respect, but where I come from respect is a privilege you earn, not a right. Only a very small percentage of ML fans will ever get a chance to talk to him and pleading his case to only a handful of people and having them make apologies on his behalf does not qualify as a legit resolution. You wanna apologize the fans, it's really easy, just say "I'm sorry guys, I screwed up, I took the fans for granted and did exactly as I was told, things will be different from now on."

     

    So no, don't assume to tell us who we have to give our goddamn respect to. He has to earn ours back. He's gotta convince us to get back behind him and his product again. I want this to work out as much as anyone here and I don't dare speak for anyone else here, but if this forum is any indication it seems like a hell of a lot more people feel like I do than feel like you do.

     

    Peace brother, got nothing but love for ya but we are on totally different sides of the fence on this.

     

     

     

    How do you think he has cheated us? Jesse doesn't decide what figures and when figures come out,And he probably doesn't get much information about it.That is true that we would get more ML's if MU wouldn't have come up,But Jesse hardly decided himself to start a brand new line in a brand new scale,That is the Hasbro's teams fault,And he should not be attacked because he is part of the company.I believe Jesse gets crap because he is about the only named Hasbro employee,So everyone automatically dumps on him,Which is just plain wrong.If Jesse has not earned your respect in the 10 years he has been working on the line,Then I'm afriad that he will never earn it.He has done an amazing job with the line and shouldn't have to explain himself if anyone thinks he's done them wrong.

    Allright guys, here\'s my report.

     

    -They will be showing 16-18 prototypes at SDCC for release in 2010.

    -The 3 two-packs will be hitting in late August at the latest, still distributed by Diamond and TRU.

    -They hinted at a new Deadpool being revealed SDCC, as well as an Inhuman to accompany Blackbolt.

    -No BAFs are coming out next year.

    -They will be doing a fan poll for new ML, the top 3 will be split across 3 new two-packs, with Hasbro choosing the partners. These will most likely come out this time next year.

    -NO RETAIL EXCLUSIVES NEXT YEAR!!!

    -They\'re still working out packaging, as in singles/two-packs for the other assortments. It seemed to me they\'re leaning towards two-packs for now still.

    -They also had a segment on Toybiz stuff that never made it, and I have a few pics from that as well.

     

    Here are the pics:

     

    Absorbing Man BAF Proto:

  9. apocalypse vs. vulcan

    Gotta agree on that one.

     

    Vulcan vs Jean Grey/(Dark) Phoenix

    Psylocke vs Emma Frost

    Firestar vs Magma

    X-23 vs Daken

    Cassandra Nova vs Joseph (I know Joseph is dead, but he could come back and during the fight consciousnesses could combine creating a new version of the sentient psionic entity known as Onslaught.)

     

     

     

    i agree.... but if you watched "Wolverine and the X-men" episodes..... psylocke and Emma Frost duked it out and emma totally kicked Psylocke's ass. haha....and i quote emma after she did the ass kicking........"pathetic."

     

     

    Wolverine and the X-Men is only one interpretation of Psylocke,And since it is a completely different story line and universe to the Comics,It is nothing to base how Emma Vs Betsy would go. Betsy is a very powerful mutant in the comics and would give Emma a run for her money.So all in all,Comparing W&TXM Psylocke to 616 Psylocke is completely ludicrice.

  10. This should actually be in the sighting and hauls thread,But I'll go along with it.

     

    I actually got ML1 Iron Man and ML1 Captain America in a pretty major store here afew months ago for £5.99. I thought it was pretty odd they were stocking them.I asked and it turns out they had been laying in the store room for years.Only a week ago they then started restocking ML12 Wolverine's and Bishops (Without the BAF piece,And really bad paintjobs,Claws falling off,missing limbs.etc).It leads me to wonder what else they have back there.

  11. Wait,So now people prefer MU over Marvel Legends? They're defending them? I cannot believe my eyes.

     

    No matter how many MU figures Hasbro makes,ML's will always be superior. I don't give a damn what anyone says,Marvel Universe killed Marvel Legends.Hasbro are too concerned with the MU line they are neglecting ML's,And you can actually see it happening. I'm still loyal to Marvel Legends.The whole "They had their time to shine,Now it's theirs." piece is a pile of crap.They have been around for almost ten years and were doing fine until hasbro made the god awful decision to start producing the 3.75". I do like the MU's and X:WO figures,But i'll always want my legends,And I don't need to be told to move on by anyone,Because if you do move on,You're forgetting the very thing that paved the way to every action figure being produced,And the very reason most of us began collecting.

     

     

    no one said for you to give up what you like. if MLs make you happy.....great! and of course the 6 inch figs are better than the 4inch ones! no one ever questioned that, but the fact is....ML had their time. how can anyone dispute the fact that ML has pretty much been snuffed out? and youre right.....we (MU likers) shouldnt tell people to move on. we should just sit back and let the goodtimes roll! people who want to waste their posting time complaining about something that theyve been complaining about for what seems like forever should be able to. i just dont see the point!

     

    If you don't even see the point,You should atleast have the decency to respect other peoples opinions and choices on this matter,Instead of trying to argue the fact that a line most of us have been collecting for almost ten years,And have over 200 figures or more from it,Do not want to have to start again with a completely new scale. And I didn't say that I don't think Legends are dead. They are gone or nearly there,But I'm still loyal to them,And hold out hope Hasbro may get their priorities in order and start paying some attention to a line they have slowly killed.

  12. Here in Cali,,,, the pegs are overflowing with series 1, 2, and 3!!! They are often on the floor or in the wrong places cuz there is too many! I only remember seeing some extra banshee or Emmas on ML side,,, not 3 entire series,,, LOL! WELL ,,,, Lets start an exciting forum today ,, I havent seen a good forum on here for a while! I HAVE A SURPRISE,,, I just received my ML RED KING PROTOTYPE and VALKYRIE PROTOTYPE from Hong Kong. Can somebody remind me how to post pictures,,, also,,, Who Do You Guys Want Me To Pose Them With! I personally seen 4 of each of these figures which I believe are part of the SDCC surprise! Im going to pick up my camera and should have the new post up later today. Please respond as how to post pics on the forum. Thanks

     

    It might be the wrong thread to post them in,So I'd make a new one. First,You have to upload the pictures with either Photobucket,Image Shack,Flickr etc. Then,Get the link to the picture and put [ IMG] -Insert Link Here- [ /IMG](The uploaders should already supply this with your link when you upload it). Then you simply copy and paste the link with the IMG tags here,And post.

  14. War Machine is one of the most wanted Marvel Legends after Deadpool. I say it is a very fair trade,If it is a legit one.

     

     

    how is war machine most wanted? ive seen that thing on a lot of trade list (other forums) for about 15.00 loose, and 25.00 carded.

    Well,I said one of the most wanted,Meaning he would be a 6 in a list of one to ten,And you've obviously seen better deals than I have. I've seen one go for $100 on Ebay,And I actually know Two people who bid on it,For the very fact they skipped it in ML9,And now they're kicking themselves for it.It is a great figure,And I have seen it on many peoples Re-release lists,And I've seen many people discussing that they wish they had it.I'm afriad the TB ML series are dying out,And so is the ammount of War machine figures that were produced,So it is natural many people are trying to get it now.
